A New Wave of Ocean Research

Our oceans are warmer, more polluted, more depleted and more unpredictable than ever before.

The need for oceanographic data and the ships that collect them has never been greater. But ocean exploration is labor-intensive, expensive and sometimes dangerous. And with COVID-19 adding to the challenges by disrupting manned marine research missions, it’s clear we need new approaches to understanding and conserving one of the world’s most important resources.

Leveraging autonomy, robotics, AI, edge computing and hybrid cloud, the Mayflower Autonomous Ship, in partnership with IBM, is enabling a new era of ocean research, helping to collect the data we need for the ocean we want.
